HC Deb 15 May 1950 vol 475 c842
35. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Food if, in view of the further representations made to him by the Urban District Councils' Association, he will reconsider his decision not to issue extra cheese rations to roadmen employed by urban district councils which have large rural areas.

Mr. Webb

I am now considering these further representations.;

Sir W. Smithers

In considering this matter, will the Minister try to use his common sense and not to be so bound up with red tape? Will he try to give consideration to these urban councils which have large rural areas?

Mr. Webb

I will go even further; I will use my common sense.
